First two wheeler was a Lamby. Then a Bajaj Cub, KB100, Enfield Fury, Fury Grand Prix. After that a Bullet Standard. Now I use a Black Karizma. The fury was incredibly quick but painfully prone to breakdowns and absolutely jaw dropping mileage, 15 KMPL!!

Right now, happy with the Karizma.

But definately would love to get a Yamaha R1 or a Honda CBR 954, in a few years time..

Been riding for the past 8 years. The list goes something like this :

1998 Kinetic Honda Marvel (98 - 00)
2000 Enfield Machismo A350 (00 - 02)
2002 Bajaj Pulsar 180 (02 - 03)
1984 Rajdoot 350 LT (03 - Present day)
2004 Hero Honda Karizma (04 - 05)
1986 Rajdoot 350 LT (04 - 05)
2005 Yamaha RX135 (05 - Present day)
1995 Yezdi Roadking (05 - 06)
1983 Rajdoot 350 HT (05 - 06)
1983 Rajdoot 350 HT (05 - 06)

Gave up speeding some time back after a bad crash, right now concentrating on restoration and maintenance. Planning to get a Rajdoot 175 for restoration soon. My RX has done less than 5000 kms and I've never ripped her. Planning to put her into storage so that my kids can see an un-raped two-stroke.
